Gout is an inflammatory condition characterized by the buildup of uric acid throughout the body, commonly in the joints and extremities, which can be very painful and make it difficult to function normally. Apples possess a rather unique type of acid, malic acid, which neutralizes the effects of uric acid and makes it impossible for the acid to bind with other crystals, thus eliminating the symptoms of gout. Drinking apple juice or adding an apple a day to your diet could help to prevent gout from developing, or minimize the symptoms if you’ve already been diagnosed. Protection Status
